Spring Forward

It’s not true that here in the Pacific Northwest we know it’s spring because the rain is warmer.  Against our year-‘round curtains of elegant evergreens, late March delights us with an explosion of colors.  Japanese cherry trees arrive in fresh whites, pinks and blues.  Daffodils yawn and push skyward, hoisting their golden crowns.  Luscious, lavender lilacs chime in.  And acres of multi-hued tulips blossom in such abundance that their bulbs are sold to Holland!

It’s as though our Creator has entered our darkened bedroom, rouses us and throws back the curtains to reveal a sun-spangled, new day, teeming with wide-eyed possibilities.

How can there not be a divine Designer behind the seamlessly choreographed change of seasons!  When faced with the futility of taming the chaos in your life, relive Solomon’s reminder:  “Everything that happens in this world happens when God chooses.”

If we can trust Him to keep the entire universe on schedule, which elements of your world would you consider leaving in His care?
